Earlier this year, Saleen took the Ford F-150 and turned it into the Sportruck, and now, they have officially unveiled an off-road focused derivative.
The Sportruck XR is based upon the F-150, to which it adds 2.5-inch coilover on both axles. Stopping power is provided by the 13.8-inch vented front discs with 2-piston calipers at the front and 13.8-inch vented discs with 1-piston calipers at the rear.
Optionally, Saleen can paint the calipers on your truck, or install either 13.6-inch or 14-inch slotted front discs with 6-piston calipers at the front.
Currently, there’s no info concerning the powertrain, but the Sportruck is powered by either a naturally aspirated engine, or a supercharged version of the same unit that’s good for more than 700 horsepower (710 PS / 522 kW) – and we guess the same applies for the XR version, too.
The front and rear bumpers, grille, sidesteps and tailgate panel are all new, and the truck sports an LED light bar at the front, Saleen decals on the windscreen and lower part of the front doors, and 8.5×17-inch rims with chunky off-road rubber on all four corners.
Inside, the Sportruck XR has a dash plaque with the model and serialized VIN, embroidered headrests in full leather or Black Label editions and floor mats, and white face gauges.
For the ultimate thrill off the beaten path, Saleen’s Sportruck XR can be ordered in the Black Label variant as well. This version adds Fox shocks with 12 inches of travel at the front and 14 at the rear, plus leather upholstery in the cabin.
Pricing details haven’t been announced, but the American tuner says that it’s already taking orders, with deliveries to commence soon.
